  1. So my Aliexpress display arrived, and looks like I eff-ed up the repair and cracked the display trying to get that double sided tape to hold... also it sometimes flickers when I open and close the slider, so I think I broke the flex cable. 🤦‍♂️ Guess I'll have to order another display now, too bad no more discounts right now (got this one via Nov 11 sales). Meanwhile, the promised display from F(x) _still_ hasn't arrived.
  2. But as an end-user, all I know is I had to pay out of my pocket to get something that was promised to be warrantied, and it was constantly pushed back and never delivered. It's a poor user experience, end of story.
  3. So my replacement screen that I ordered a week and a half ago on Aliexpress came in. I'm very convinced at this point F(x) is just trying to weasel out of granting the warranty, if some random parts supplier can get me the screen this quick from China...
  4. So I sent another follow up to support since they were looking at "a large batch of screens" in October. We're half-way through November yet more radio silence from F(x). They didn't even bother replying at this point.
  5. Ironically all my social media apps (mainly Twitter and Sync) both works perfectly fine. It's banking apps mostly that has the most trouble. I'm already using Tasker force landscape to allow rotation in most apps, but some just crash or reset when it tries to rotate, and doesn't scale properly, resulting in hidden buttons. Rotate it back, app restarts. It's not the time I don't want to invest (you're looking at someone who actually went ahead and used ADB to fix problems on a 6 year old phone, my Priv was actually randomly rebooting until I spent hours tracing down what was the issue),
  6. ...and going back to my BlackBerry Priv. It's been an interesting year and a bit with the Pro 1, but I don't think it's working out. Software is just... I don't know, unfinished. It's more than a year, some glaring bugs are still there, apt-X, taking two tries for the launcher to minimize properly, inability to press Shift + Num for the corresponding symbol, you name it. My Priv is still on Android 6, but at least BlackBerry had the decency to keep it updated (close to) monthly and most bugs were ironed out before they pulled the plug. I know inevitably someone will tell me install Linea
  7. Getting sick of waiting on Fx to send me my replacement, might just order via a friend from China directly. Does this look like the right screen? 大象Elephone U U Pro屏幕总成 Amoled elephone u upro E9002-淘宝网 (taobao.com)
  8. I thought Expansys was their distribution partner. Mine came from them from Hong Kong.
  9. Nope, not ground related if that's what you're referring to. All my tests were done away from a charger, so 100% just the phone itself.
  10. OK so basically the initial "massaging" thing I was doing on the corner initially. Thing is my problem actually started with "dancing"... meaning if I tap anything on that strip, the phone would go crazy for a few seconds tapping random things above AND below that strip. It was to the point I couldn't unlock my phone after a reboot (or that dreaded "Too many attempts" message when I haven't even touched my phone once). That's when I found out when the phone works fine if the screen is not attached. I took it apart and applied some electrical tape at random locations to experiment, an
  11. You have a pic or diagram to explain what smoothing you mean? One thing I mentioned in the other thread was that for my phone, the current display works perfectly fine if I don't install it to the slider mechanism. Meaning if I just detach it, it works fine. But the moment I snap the display to the frame, it starts messing up. This could be a potential fix for me instead of replacing the display.
  12. My only concern now is that if they are actually stalling it deliberately and weasel out of the claim, specifically the ghost touch problem I'm having. This response from @SCΛRECROW is bit concerning: Ghost touches and unresponsive area on lower screen - Page 11 - Support - F(x)tec Community (fxtec.com) Sorry but I'm losing hope, but I hope I'm wrong.
  13. So support FINALLY replied to me after sending 3 emails and a tweet, now my screen has been further pushed out to October. Think I'm about to just give up on this phone and move my Moto One Hyper as the primary. And the screen isn't the only thing that's bugging me now, I recently found out that my reception problems was the phone itself. I couldn't sustain a phone call properly in my room, but when I put my SIM into the Moto, it conducted phone calls perfectly fine even with just the 1 bar of signal.
  14. I literally just want an answer on when my replacement screen they promised is coming... sigh.\
  15. https://www.xda-developers.com/android-12-killing-native-sip-calling/ With that being said, SIP calling account support is getting killed off. OP might want to start looking at alternatives.
